2 cups red lentils*⠀
400g diced tomatoes ⠀
2 Tbsp tomato paste⠀
1 large red capsicum diced ⠀
100g diced onion⠀
1 Tbsp garlic paste⠀
1/2 Tbsp ginger paste⠀
1 fresh green or red chili sliced⠀
3 cups hot vegetable stock⠀
2 tsp chili powder⠀
1 tsp oregano⠀
1 tsp cumin⠀
1 Tbsp smoked paprika⠀
1 tsp liquid smoke (optional)⠀
1/8 cup natural sweetener (used xylitol)⠀
Salt & Black Pepper to taste⠀

Place all ingredients in pressure cooker, set to 15mins cook⠀
Allow pressure to release naturally once completed.⠀
Adjust seasonings to taste and add more liquid for a thinner consistency ⠀
Serve with basmati, brown rice or quinoa *I soak my lentils for a few hours in warm water with 2Tbsp apple cider vinegar, before rinsing and using in the recipe. Not compulsory for red lentils, but I find it helps digestion. Enjoy!
